Choosing to avoid processed sugars doesn't have to mean suppressing cravings! This recipe totally satisfies my peanut butter cup cravings, but leaves me feeling full instead of slightly sick. Try maple syrup in place of honey for additional flavor. Enjoy!

Tasted amazing! If you want to have higher nutritional value, skip the stove step and just mix it all up in a bowl and after dropping on wax paper, put it in the freezer! My family loved it! Read More

I made these using natural PB "Adams". They were missing that rich flavor that comes with other PB brands I even added a bit more honey. I found them boring and simply not amazing. Read More

My mom and I made the original no-bake cookies many times while I was growing up. I always loved them but I haven't made them in a long long time. When I came across this recipe I decided to give it a try and see if they were as good as what I remember the originals to be. We loved this recipe. It's not too sweet. I used a little less than a cup of honey which was perfect for our tastes. I also added a couple tablespoons ground flaxseed meal and I doubled the vanilla. I used natural crunchy peanut butter. The texture is softer than the original but they set just fine. The texture is great...creamy and a little chewy from the oats. This one's a keeper for us. I think it would work great with agave or brown rice syrup too. Read More

I liked that these were healthier than the regular no bake cookies. I have heard so much about the health benefits of coconut oil but this was the first time that I had used it in a recipe. These were quick and easy to make! Thanks for sharing your recipe. Read More

This is my one and only review ever and so it says a lot that I'm choosing to review this deliciously PERFECT cookie. Easy to make wholesome ingredients and super DELICIOUS. I made some adjustments however. 1) Substituted brown rice syrup for honey 2) used only 3/4 cup brown rice syrup instead of 1 cup - came out PERFECT 3) added 1/2 tsp of salt 4) doubled the vanilla. Also I live in Southern California - it gets warm inside my house no matter what season it is. So I threw these in the freezer for 10 minutes and keep it in the refrigerator between taking bites! Just a warning: these melt really quickly they are wonderfully messy on your fingers! I have now shared them with many people and no matter what the "taste bud" range they have LOVED them. TRUST ME: SO DELICIOUS! MUST TRY! Thank you for this recipe! Read More

I gave this 5 stars because for "healthier" and considering the ingredients used these were very good and the sweetness was not overpowering and most importantly my kids loved these cookies. I tweaked the recipe a bit and added about 1/2 cup of ground flax used 1 3/4 cup oats instead of the 2 cups 3/4 cup of honey instead of the 1 cup asked for and 2 teaspoon of vanilla instead of 1.

I made two batches the first one I followed the directions exactly. It was good but I'm used to the super sweet white sugar ones so for me they weren't quite sweet enough; although still very tasty for what they are. The second batch I made with real maple syrup and they were much sweeter and more along the lines of the super sweet white sugar ones. This will definitely be my go to recipe from now on! Read More

Best No-Bake by far! A little heavy on the oil. I cut it in half the second time. Added raisins! Definitely a keeper! Read More

I made No Bake Cookies III and this recipe on the same day. I used organic ingredients in both. What I didn't realize was missing from this recipe is the milk. In the NBCIII cookies I used almond milk instead of regular milk. This recipe doesn't call for milk at all. When the DH compared them he said that this recipe tasted more like dark chocolate even though I used the same cocoa powder in both. So in the future I'd like to find a way to incorporate some almond milk in these without affecting the consistency. Other than that they were PERFECT! Read More
